The world is full of problems. Kids, adults and even seniors like our grand parents have problems. Rich people and poor people alike. It is the one thing we all have in common. No one's life is free of difficulties. Sometimes these problems arise from the decisions we make. Sometimes the decisions and actions of others can cause us concern and worry. This seems to be a part of life that none of us can escape.
When we are going through trials and tribulations, its easy to focus on the problem and how it is affecting our lives. Our problem can seem like the worse thing in the world. Bigger than anything else in our life. But if we can broaden our focus, we will realize that no problem is new. Someone else has been faced with this same problem and someone else has lived through it.
It's all about how you look at it. You can let your problems consume you and keep you from moving forward. You can face whatever it is head on and decide what can do about it. Or you can walk through this life with God. Trusting that you can make it through anything with Him on your side. He may not take the problem away but He will strengthen you and guide you to whatever is next in your life.
Sometimes you have take every experience in this life a learning experience. Something that we need to go through. This life is short and we are here for a reason. Everything that happens is a chance for us to learn or grow.
I was watching a video recently where DMX said, "Whatever it is, it's gonna be alright." There is so much truth in this statement. Because as long as we live this life trying to fulfill God's purpose for our life. Do our best to help those around us. Show love and build loving relationships. And grow in personal relationship with God, no matter what happens here on earth... it's gonna be alright. It's gonna be alright as long as in the end we return home to Heaven to be with our Father, our Creator, God.
So, there's no down side to sickness, death, grief, pain or heartache because as long as we live right, we will return to the Lord where none of those things exist. Don't let your problems weigh you down. Keep your focus on God. And watch how the gravity of your problems diminish. All because you will have God to go through the deep and turbulent waters of life with you. Don't worry... it's a wasted emotion. Remain hopeful in all situations.
